Restaurant365 has always enabled quick access to key information to control food cost and optimize labor. The Smart Ops Release makes it even easier for restaurant managers to perform on the highest levels by making it simple to leverage the powerful Restaurant365 all-in-one engine.
“With the time savings and increased accuracy, we’re now able to spend that time operating the restaurants,” said JP Thomas, Director of Operations for honeygrow. “The biggest way that the new Smart Ops Release has improved operations in the restaurants is by freeing up our managers’ time in a big way and giving us more accurate financial results.

“The Smart Ops Release was built for operators by operators,” says Restaurant365 Group Product Manager, Joe Hannon, who also spent a decade as a general manager. “We worked very closely with our operations customers to come up with solutions that help them purchase the right amount, pay the best price, and prioritize urgent problem areas. It also helps that Restaurant365 is staffed by many former restaurant operators. Together with our customers, we built the Smart Ops Release to add real value while enabling users to get through administrative tasks faster.”
